Column Base Plate Design in Tekla Tedds

The Tekla Tedds Column base plate design module makes it easier to analyze base plate bending based on the design guidelines provided in AISC Steel Design Guide 1. The short video above goes over how easy it can be to design column base plates in Tekla Tedds, including the calculation checks needed for the designing of column base plate thickness, section to base welding and shear lugs. Additionally, you'll also learn how to use the anchor bolt calculation checks for various tensile and shear failure modes in embedded anchors.
